We last released something from UK idm-er Aereal all the way back in 2001, so we were delighted when he contacted us and asked us to release a short EP with some of the best tracks he's worked on since then. Thus, we have the 'Moved Moment EP', a four-track set of delightfully looping electronic music.
So, where are we? We start off with 'Move Moment', a driving, driven piece of percussive melodic goodness, before moving on to the wonderfully smooth 'Direct Medic', and onward and upward to the almost vibrating melodic techno of '3D Situation', a strange mix of the B12-ish Warp and even more Detroit-esque sounds, but with a touch of the new chill in there too. We finish off with the marginally more downtempo 'Solitary Motions', and a wonderfully considered end to a classy EP - a touch of the past, but a touch of the gleaming future, too.

the final track may seem different (inclusion of world music drums) from the others but i am glad for its appearance on this ep. at any rate, this is a solid 4 because of nice melodies behind nice downtempo breaky beats. well done. will definitely listen to this on several occasions.

Cool little EP
Great, breezy uptempo EP. The bulk of it moves and allowed my mind to wander, sort of like a warm breezy spring day, enough to make noise on your ears. Thoroughly enjoyable, though the closing track seems like an afterthought, a little out of place.
